My Approach

“That nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and impermanent, that is the first mark of existence.” Pema Chodron

In a post pandemic world, we are more intimately aware of the fact that everything in life is always moving and changing.  Any attachment to things staying the same is futile.

We have come to equate mental health with “illness.”  I offer a new and fresh perspective on what it means to seek support for personal growth.  We do not need to be in a state of disrepair and suffering to feel an ache or calling for something more.  We can find ourselves at times having gone off course and may need guidance in finding our true north which resides within all of us.  All we have to do is get quiet enough to go within and find the answers to our life’s questions.  My approach is for someone who is looking for a guide/mentor along this journey.

I work with a framework that incorporates the physical, emotional, environmental nutritional and spiritual factors that lead towards well-being.  My approach has a foundation in the connection of the mind-body-spirit which views physical and mental health as intimately intertwined.  In my work, I incorporate Buddhist and Positive psychology along with mindfulness meditation, yoga and various other coping skills to help individuals build resilience to stress. As a nutrition coach, I utilize my training and the research on the gut brain connection to inform how our diet is intimately linked to our emotional stability and overall well-being.

My style of working with both individual and groups is akin to what it feels like to be with a trusted family friend who “keeps it real.”  Who I am personally is who I am professionally.  I believe we are all souls in human bodies and we come together for the evolution of our soul’s journey.

The focus is on wellness, not illness.  Together we will work with a growth mindset to help you sit with those difficult questions and emotions, find your true north and go out into the world and make it happen!  Let’s team up and help you manifest your joy and happiness!  Cheers!
